Smooth, Low-Friction Operation

Typical jack screw systems feature direct contact between the surfaces of the screw and the threaded nut. This constant contact produces a good deal of friction, which not only increases the amount of power necessary to operate the jack but also creates heat within the system. Heat leads to increased wear on the threads, and this wear can ultimately lead to failure.


Husky Brute Ball Bearing Jack Screw System

The Brute is built with ball bearings that roll smoothly along the threads of the screw shaft and the nut, thereby eliminating direct surface-to-surface contact. This produces far less friction along the threads, leading to a reduction in heat and wear, as well as noise. In addition, because much of the friction is eliminated, less power is needed to operate the Brute. This electric jack pulls 30 percent less amperage than jacks with traditional screw systems. The overall result is a jack that can be raised and lowered faster, smoother and more efficiently.


SmartStop Automatic Stop

When a typical trailer jack is extended beyond the recommended height, the threaded nut that creates the up-and-down movement will hit a built-in stop at the top of the shaft - and hit it hard. If you leave the motor running, the nut will continue to apply pressure to this stop as it attempts to rise higher. The result is extreme stress on the gears and on the jack as a whole.


The Husky Brute has an integrated safety feature to combat this problem. The SmartStop timing system ensures that the jack motor shuts off before the nut can hit the built-in stop. No hard mechanical stops. No undue stress on the screw system. And most importantly, no damage to your powered jack.

Video Transcript for Husky Camper Jack - A-Frame Jack - HT87247 Review

Today we're going to review Part Number HT87247. This is the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack. It has a dropleg design and is designed for A-frame trailers, has an 18-inch lift, and a 4500-pound weight capacity. This electric jack with the power drive will let you lift and lower your trailer quickly and easily. It does use a low-friction ball screw, which will minimize resistance, helps reduce wear, noise, and heat, and the difference compared to your regular typical screw system, it uses ball bearings, which will roll smoothly through the threads so there's no direct friction-inducing contact. That means there's 30% less power draw than the typical screw systems.

It does have a SmartStop, which is an automatic stop to prevent damage caused by hard stops and excessive pressure. Basically what happens is the motor will shut down before the nut reaches the end of the shaft. What that means is, I'm going to show you once Ihook it up a little bit later here, when you push the toggle switch and you retract it, and you get to the point where it can't go any further, even though your finger is on this switch, it'll stop because of that SmartStop design. If you also notice it has the 3 LEDs. There's one in front, which helps in nighttime hookups to the trailer. It also has one on each side.

The reason they're on the sides is it'll help as far as if you're going to hook up or disconnect your weight distribution system at night also. The very back of the jack, if you'll notice, has a trailer connector storage bracket. This'll guard your trailer wiring from the elements. You can just hang it right up in there to protect it. It does have the drop leg.

The drop leg does have a foot plate which has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches. The drop plate actually can be adjustable up to 6 inches. In other words, if you just pull this clip off, and we turn it here, we'll pull this pin out, you can see that you can adjust the range of the drop leg; about 6 inches is the total amount you can adjust it. Once you get it in the spot, I'mjust going to put it on the lowest one right now, you put the pin and clip back in, you're ready to go. On the inside of this jackit uses stainless steel gears and stainless steel fasteners, which offer maximum durability. This outside is a very sturdy cover.

The switches are a weatherproof switch which will prevent water-related damage to the motor. It does have a nice silver powder-coat finish to help resist corrosion. As you can see, it's a bolt-on installation for A-frame trailers, and it has the 3 holesat the dimensions that are the industry standard for your A-frame trailers. This jack does come with the parts shown here. It comes with this manual override crank that allows you to operate this when you lose power or just need to manually retract it or extend it. You do have to use . It has this brake release lever. I'll show you how that works. It also comes with this 30-amp circuit breaker. Basically, if you'll notice, it has this 6-foot length of 10-gauge power wire. When you install this, you will actually ground when you mount it to your trailer. It'll ground through the trailer itself, so you just have the one power wire. What you would do is you would put this circuit breaker in line when you connect it. One end would go to this wire, the other end to your power source. That way you have a 30-amp circuit breaker. If you overload, to protect this jack, it'll overload, pop that circuit breaker, then once you fix your problem, you can just push that button on top and that'll reset it. I do want to show you the override. In other words, the situation where you lose power or don't have access to power and you've got to manually operate this jack. What you'll want to do is at the very top here, if I can turn it toward you, there's a black rubber plug. You just pull that plug right out. There's an opening there. You'll take this manual crank in the socket end. You just fit that in there. Once you feel around you'll feel it fit right on just like a socket. You have a crank here, but before you can crank it, what you'll need to do is release the brake. The way you do that is you pull this plug off right here on the side. You'll take this little lever, this is the brake release lever; it has this open slot to it. You'll see the lever in there. Just put that inaudible 0:04:22 Inthere and then push it forward and that'll release your brake. That will allow you to crank this to retract it or extend it manually without any power.Put the plugs back in here. Do need to work the plugs a little bit, because they do seal completely. There we go. We'll take the crank out. See if Ican get this plug back in here. It's a tight seal, so sometimes it takes a little working. Yep,there we go. That'll work for now. Okay. We do want to give you a few measurements on this. I am going to hook this up. I have a 12-volt power source here to show you how this'll operate, but I do want to give you some measurements first. I have the jack fully retracted, the footplate all the way at the bottom retracted, so your bracket height is going to be 8 1/2 inches retracted. If you would fully extend this jack out and leave the footplate as it is, retracted, it would give you a total extended height of 26 1/2 inches. The lift on this is 18 inches. If you do use the drop leg adjustment of 6 inches more, that gives you a total of 24 inches total travel; the 18-inch lip, the 6-inch drop leg. If you ended up extending the jack all the way and the drop leg all the way, that would give you a total extension of about 32 1/2 inches. The lift capacity on this jack is 4500 pounds. The tube right here is 2 1/4 inches. This is a 12-volt jack. It does estimate about 10 inches of travel in 38 seconds. It does come with a 1-year warranty. What I want to do is I want to show you, I just want to hook it up to this power source. Ihave a 12-volt power source. There's 12-volt power, but needs to be grounded. Since we don't have this mounted and this paint might not give a good ground, what I'm going to do is ground it to the footplate. I'm going to show you, you can see the lights come on. There's your front light. There's the light on each side; on and off. To operate the jack is this toggle switch right next to the light switch. If we pull up on it, you can see it extending it out. If you let go, it's a toggle switch so it'll stop automatically. If you push it down, you can see it's retracting and you'll notice the SmartStop design right there. Let me show you. I still have my finger on it. Watch, it'll hit andyour finger's still on it, it'll automatically stop it. Very nice feature to protect your jack. That should do it for the review on Part Number HT87247, the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack Drop Leg Design for the A-frame trailers. .

I never write reviews but this electric jack is outstanding! I recently tore some ligaments and dislocated my shoulder which made cranking up my travel trailer painful especially getting it just right to hook up the load leveling hitch. My 4 wheel drive truck is fairly tall so I had to crank it up to get over the hitch then down to lock the hitch then jack it back up to get the leveling bars on. By the time I was done I was sweaty and in pain. After a lot of research I found etrailer, more research and I think I found the perfect electric tongue jack. It was simple to install, it lifts my trailer and truck with ease, it runs smoothly and it is quiet. I could not be happier with the Husky Brute 4500# jack or etrailer service 571310

Love this new Lift! etrailer is the best. Easy order, fast delivery, great installation videos. It was easy to install. I wired it inside the electric brake box and mounted the circuit breaker to the side of the battery box. No splicing of wires. Well made piece of equipment. Love the lights, weather sealed switches AND the trailer connection Hanger w/cover......nice! Worth the money, superior to other types I researched. I'm 63 and tired of hand cranking. My trailer is 19' long and very tall and heavy and this lifts it with ease. This is very quiet also. 433280

Its been a year, and that lift is so dependable, I use it 7 days a week to hook up and unhook my 19 dual axle 10,000 lb. enclosed work trailer. Never fails! So much easier than hand cranking the jack. Its more then worth the money.

I have owned two 20' enclosed trailers that are full of either lawn equipment or construction tools. I have had electric jacks on each of them for several years now that I purchased at a local trailer dealer. One of them recently went out so I purchased an electric jack from etrailer. I never knew that my old jacks was so weak. The new jack installed in minutes and looks a lot better than any of my old ones. I cant wait until my other jack tears up so I can order me another one to replace it. I ordered it on Monday and had it on my trailer on Wednesday. If you are thinking about getting one, don't wait.....you won't be sorry. 161722

After installing and wiring up this lift I realized I could not close the rear hatch on my tow vehicle. On top of that the base collar does not allow me to rotate the head of the lift away from the travel of the door to get the hatch closed or open. I tried rotating the jack around but could only find bolt hole openings for 2 bolts instead of the 3 I needed for strength. They should have machined out wider slots to allow more rotation of the base collar over the nut plates to find the bolt holes. I believe they forgot about this problem when they engineered the jack which, by the way, is very impressive and well made. After I figure a way around my problem I am certain I will enjoy this jack as I reviewed many and made it my first choice 433447


Comments
Wow what a product!! It is everything that the company has stated. It is a brute of a jack. Very reliable and makes me so glad I purchased it. I became very interested in it when I read about how differently the internal parts were engineered. This one is built to last a long time. Look no further than this one for satisfaction...

Purchased the 4500 unit. Installed in about 1 hour. Fast shipping and unit works great. We have the load leveling system and this should make setup fast and smooth! Note: My LP tanks sit very close to the back of unit. I called the factory and they said just take the five screw out of the back where the electric out can be placed and it comes right off and still water tight. Remounted the electric holder on the side of shaft with zip ties. Awesome! 139265

Installation was quite easy. The circuit breaker seemed too easy to reset as there was no resistance. Several attempts to activate the lift failed. Checked power and 12.5 volts to the motor from a new 12 volt battery. Still will not operate. Will call the manufacturer to determine discuss the issue. 570699


Comments
There are a few things that could be causing the problem youre experiencing. Overloading the jack is the most common culprit, but since the jack you purchased has a whopping 4500 lb lift capacity, so I doubt thats the issue. The next likely candidate is a short in the power feed circuit. Make sure the connection at the battery is secure, and that the power feed wire doesnt have any nicks or cuts in it.

Has not worked correctly since day 1. Don't know if it is a wiring issue but It seems to work fine one day and then slow or not at all the next. 783160


Comments
This electric jack is grounded through the mounting hardware. The star washers included with the jack have to penetrate the jacks paint in order for the jack to ground. Even if they have, sometimes the jack needs a stronger connection for a consistent ground. If the star washers have dug into the jacks mounting plate through the paint, you can add a dedicated ground wire with a ring terminal between the star washer and the mounting bolt, then secure the other end of the wire with a ring terminal to a bare metal spot on the trailer frame. Another tip for more consistent performance is to power the jack with a battery on the trailer. If you are powering the jack with the vehicles battery through the trailer connector, this could be causing inconsistent power supply to the jack.

Product install was very easy and straight forward. I tested it out in my driveway and it lifts and lowers smoothly. It is a little slower than I hoped but I do not know how that compares to other electric jacks. Another think to keep in mind when deciding is clearance to your tailgate. In my case I can no longer open the tailgate when hooked to the trailer. 776358



- HT87247
by:

I didn't get to use this enough last year. When I did use it this jack worked like a champ. Our setup uses an Equalizer hitch so some of the hookup/unhook procedure is to lift the back of the truck with the trailer in order to get the weight distribution bars up on their brackets. The old manual jack was a task to do that. The only problem I might have now is a blister on my finger from operating the switch on the jack. :-) 772706

  • Troubleshooting a Husky Brute Trailer Jack that Doesnt Go Up or Down
    A common problem with a trailer jack like your Husky Brute # HT87247 that will not go up or down is that the battery is dead or bad or the battery connection is bad. I would start by checking the battery and the connections, including the ground. If it's not the battery it could be the switch. You can test this by removing the switch and applying power directly to the switch's wiring. If the jack starts working then the switch is bad. A replacement switch is # HT87452.

The manual scissor jacks typically need less ground clearance than electric ones and they add much less weight to your towing system. They also do not deplete precious battery power.

If the jack works once this is done then you know the switch is bad and it can be replaced with part # HT87452. However, if the jack still does not work even when direct power is applied to the motor and you have checked...

  • Recommended Electric Jack For 2012 Keystone Outback 301BQ
    For your 2012 Keystone Outback 301BQ, I recommend the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 18" Lift - 4,500 lbs # HT87247. This jack uses a low-friction ball screw to minimize resistance to reduce wear, noise and heat. Ball bearings roll smoothly through threads so there is no direct friction contact like a typical threaded screw design. This allows the system to draw 30 percent less power than screw systems.

  • Can the Head of the Husky Brute Jack part # HT87247 Be Rotated When Installed
    The Husky Brute Jack part # HT87247 uses a 3 bolt mounting flange to attach to an A-frame trailer. If you wanted to rotate the jack on this flange you certainly could, but it would not be at a 90 degree angle since the mounting flange is basically triangle shaped. It would be more like a 120 degree rotate.

  • Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for Heartland Mallard 312
    My favorite powered jack to recommend is the Husky Jack part # HT87247 as it has bearings in the screw which allow it to operate quicker and smoother. It also shuts off automatically before topping or bottoming out. Other jacks will allow you to go too far with the jack but in doing so you damage the threads of the screw. It has a lifting capacity of 4,500 lbs which would be more than you'd need but will ensure that the jack will operate quickly and last a long time.

  • Best Electric Trailer Jack for Use with a 2017 Keystone Bullet 243BHS
    You will want to find a jack that can at least lift the weight of your fully loaded trailer. Since the Tongue Weight (TW) of a trailer should be between 10-15% of the weight of your trailer, we can do a little math to figure out what would be best. I found that your 2017 Keystone Bullet 243BHS has a dry weight of 4,685 lbs and can carry up to 1,815 lbs meaning that the most your trailer will weigh is 6,500 lbs. This will put your TW at 650 lbs - 975 lbs. I recommend going with a jack...

  • Best Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for Trailers
    I really like the Husky Brute Jacks like the part # HT87247 as they use ball bearings in the main screw of the jack for a smoother (quicker) operation and because they automatically stop when they reach the bottom or the top of the jack's range. Similar jacks will allow you to over-extend them and damage the threads, but not this one. This jack also has a 4,500 lb lifting capacity so it is more than strong enough for nearly every application. You should note that this figure does not...

  • Will Powered Trailer Jacks Drain The Vehicle or Trailer Battery If Left Connected
    When the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 that you referenced is not being used it will not drain the battery. I am not sure exactly what was going on with the customer who left the review you mentioned, but if I had to guess there was a short somewhere on his trailer wiring that was causing amperage draw that drained his battery.
